MRS. GORDON OF BELLIE'S REEL [2]. Scottish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by William Marshall (1748-1833). A Scottish fiddler and composer, Marshall is most famous for his many fine strathspeys. Marshall worked for much of his life for the Duke of Gordon as the Steward of his Household, and it is fortunate that the Duke was an enthusiastic supporter and patron of Marshall’s music.
